Insider slams door on Jonathan Taylor-to-Bears rumors originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago
“They’re not in on Jonathan Taylor,” he said.
Schefter went through a variety of angles on the story, but his ultimate takeaway was that the Bears will not be involved in the trade talks with the Colts.
In recent days, multiple reports had linked the Bears to the Colts, citing their salary cap space and draft pick capital, but Schefter and others have since pushed back on those rumors.
“All I can tell you is the Bears won’t be trading for Jonathan Taylor,” he said.
The Colts have set a deadline of Tuesday to receive offers for Taylor, according to multiple reports, but it is unclear how things will play out if a deal is not set in place by that date.
Of course, the team also has Justin Fields, who broke out last season largely on the strength of his running ability.
